Farmers’ Markets at Ohio Rest Areas

Ohioans are being presented with the unique opportunity to pilot farmers' markets at four Ohio rest areas. The four potential locations are:

  1. Interstate 71 at New Brunswick (mile marker 224);
  2. Interstate 70 in Licking County (mile marker 131 by Buckeye Lake);
  3. Interstate 75 in Hancock County (mile marker 153 by Findlay)
  4. State Route 2 on the Lorain/Erie County line.

In order to gauge interest in the program, please fill out the survey linked below. Each market will need a farm market manager so please indicate in the survey if you are interested in being that person. Each market will also need to be registered through ODA as a farmers' market (registration is free) and each vendor will have to follow ODA's Division of Food Safety regulations for farmers' markets.
